CBS Ch. 4 (KCNC) Mobile Weather Lab visits Adams County (R1D1) ARES Meeting

On August 7, 2014 the CBS Ch 4, Denver, Mobile Weather Lab vehicle visited the Adams County (R1D1) meeting at the Adams County Sheriff Substation at 4701 E. 72nd Ave. in Commerce City.

The Mobile Weather Lab (MWL) was operated by Mr. Rob McClure, a News Photojournalist at CBS Ch. 4.  This visit was set up by Mr. Tim Wieland, News Director with help from Mr. Ed Greene, Senior Meteorologist at the television station.

Because weather plays a big part in the lives of Coloradans, the ARES group was happy to see a vehicle that was dedicated to following the weather and allowing the public to keep track of it.  As storm spotters with the National Weather Service, it was fun to see technology that was used by the local television stations to track the weather, especially severe storms,  and keep the general public informed and safe.

Adams County (R1D1) ARES would like to thank CBS Ch.4, Denver along with Mr. Tim Wieland, Mr. Ed Greene for helping to set this event up, and especially Mr. Rob McClure for taking the time to come and set up the Mobile Weather Lab and discuss it with us.
